Hola Night Owls & Early Birds

One of my favorite things about YouTube are all the old time radio shows to be found.  A treasure trove, really.

Been introducing myself to Mr. Chameleon and Casey, Crime Photographer.  And last night listened to an episode of Texas Rangers.  A while back I discovered that Vincent Price was the voice of The Saint, another radio show.  And, early in his career, Orson Welles was The Shadow.  Dragnet started out as a radio show.  The Thin Man film series –one of my favorites– was turned into a radio show which ran for many years.  Unfortunately not with the original stars.  But Lux Radio Theater did do radio shows of the first two movies, The Thin Man & After The Thin Man, where Myrna Loy & William Powell reprised their roles.  These can also can be found on YouTube. Yesterday my dad was telling me about a couple radio shows he enjoyed growing up in Argentina.  

Tonight’s essential cartoon showcases another subject my dad enjoys: SOCCER!  It’s a sport I’ve learned to enjoy as well (Thanks Mike W).

But every time a player tumbles to the ground, I can’t help thinking–he’s gonna need a chiropractor.

Time for me to climb back into my web.

Until mañana . . .

Bring on the spiders!
